He finished ahead of teammates Tomas Tatar, Brendan Gallagher and Joel Armia.
The 31-year-old goaltender registered a 5-3-0 record in eight contests in January, and was tied with A. Vasilevskiy for most shutouts in the NHL for the month with two. Price ranked second among league netminders in both goals-against average (1.51) and save percentage (.953).
Price will be presented with the Molson Cup during a ceremony prior to tomorrow afternoon's game against the New Jersey Devils at the Bell Centre.
